Postgres Build 2020, EDB’s first virtual conference for the European market, took place on December 8-9, and we welcomed 1300+ attendees and 35+ speakers from all around the world.
The primary goal of this conference was to bring together PostgreSQL users, community members, and thought leaders, along with enterprises, to connect with each other and explore PostgreSQL technology and use cases.
Our group of speakers and panelists provided inspiring keynotes, technical talks, and in-depth live sessions across the two days, on topics related to the Future of PostgreSQL, Cloud & Kubernetes, and Migration to PostgreSQL.
In this post, we'll highlight the event's top sessions, interactive elements, and more!
All 29 talks at Postgres Build 2020 were engaging and well attended, but a few proved to be crowd favorites. Here's a look at the top 7:
The Postgres Ecosystem Keynote by EDB's Simon Riggs
Hosted PostgreSQL: An Objective Look Keynote by PostgreSQL expert Christophe Pettus
Benefits and Challenges of Postgres in the Enterprise Customer Panel with Bruce Momjian, Ferdinand Vogeler, Benny Rutten and Farid Dehak
Does Anyone Really Need RAC? session by EDB's Karen Jex
Migration DB2 to EDB - Project Experience session by Harald Stefan of BG Phoenics GmbH
True Postgres High Availability Architecture with Industry Standard Open-Source Tooling by Mike Sijmons of Nibble IT
Best Practices & Lessons Learned from Development of PostgreSQL by EDB's Marc Linster
Aside from a myriad of educational content and virtual networking, Postgres Build provided a number of fun, interactive moments for attendees! For example, EDB's Boriss Mejias, who spoke about Variations on PostgreSQL Replication, played some open source music on the guitar during his session. In addition, there was a Wellness session on both days of the conference, desk yoga, and laughter yoga—which was fun, refreshing, and enjoyable for all who tuned in.
